Abstract

Cr3B7O13Cl: space group Pca21, a 8.5647(2), b 8.6125(2), c 12.1453(3) .ANG., Rp = 0.0273, RB = 0.0723 was refined from x-ray powder profile data at T = 100 K. Lattice parameters as measured on single-crystals and powders show a discontinuous vol. increase of 0.45% at the cubic-to-tetragonal phase transition at 264 K, but practically no vol. change (<001%) at the tetragonal-to-orthorhombic phase transition at 180 K. The metal coordinations in the orthorhombic low-temp. modification differ less from those in the cubic high-temp. modification than in other boracites.
